STN on the Web Enhanced with New Patent Family Assistant and Updated Structure Plug-In

June  18th,   2011

STN on the Web was updated to include a new Patent Family Assistant and an updated Structure Plug-in.

The new Patent Family Assistant is located in the Assistants folder (previously Search Assistants folder) and allows you to:

  • Extract the first member from each patent family: Use this feature to include only a single member from each patent family in your answer set.
  • Remove twin multiple basics from patent families*: Use this feature to manage the multiple basic patent content of a CA/CAplus answer set with the option to retain the:
    • WO basic patent,
    • national basic patent with oldest priority,
    • patent with the oldest application date or
    • patent with the oldest publication date.

  • Customize displays of patent family results: Save time and money by selecting different display formats for the first family member of a patent family vs. equivalents.

Take advantage of improved structure drawing and searching capabilities available with the updated Structure Plug-in (version 8.5).

*This feature of the new Patent Family Assistant is also new to STN.
